Butterfly sighting

Jul 3

Ron Arnold

Location: NABA Sandhill/Seneca Count
Wood County

32 species and 285 individuals. This is very close to my lowest numbers for all 29 years for this count. The Common Ringlets that I saw yesterday were absent today, but the Checkered White sighting made up for it. Hairstreaks and Skippers had very low numbers, but all individuals were fresh and they may be just at the beginning of their flights. The swans are Trumpeters, and they paid little attention to me.
